We stayed here for a mission trip to Korogocho. It is dated but clean. The food is good but pretty much the same thing every night. The shower in my room had good pressure and good temperature control but other people on my trip had problems with the water in their room being too hot to shower and they were... More

Pleasant place to stay. Comfortable beds, shower with hot water and good pressure (room 225 has a bad shower, but 201 is great). Walls are thin, so bring earplugs. Really nice staff. The place is very dated, but in good, clean condition. Really nice staff. Very far from airport, not within walking distance to any food markets.

I stayed here for 6 nights in March. My room did not have air condition, but the bellman brought a fan which I got to keep for my entire stay. Please note that you will sleep under a mosquito net, which didn't cause me any problems once I learned to use it. The wifi usually worked well, although slowly. It... More

MGH is nothing special - rooms are fine, though dated along with decor. It is somewhat of a labyrinth, so easy to get lost. Internet is ok, but don't expect to Skype on it. It's strictly no smoking (even in the car park) which seemed overkill. Breakfast is varied and plentiful and does the job, but inside and lacking in... More

I took some time to be with family this past weekend and went to for a swim at this pool following a friend's recommendation. The pool was full and seemed not to have been cleaned that day. They don't have attendants to attend to young children.As a parent, you have to jump into the pool and watch over your children.... More

Staying at the Methodist Guest House was a wonderful way to begin our visit in Kenya. We arrived late at night, exhausted after 24+ hours of travel. Our room was small and welcoming. After a refreshingly cool shower, we opened the window to let the cool nighttime air in our room, and settled quickly into our comfortable beds under mosquito... More

Arriving at 2:00 in the morning after a long wait for luggage at the airport, we were greeted and promptly shown our rooms. Rooms are relatively spartan, but serviceable for this economical hotel. The hotel offers a good location in a safe and well-traveled area of Nairobi and is a good way station after flying into Nairobi before traveling throughout... More

The Methodist Guest House is located in a nicer part of Nairobi and is located securely in a walled enclosure. We had a mosquito net and the breakfast buffet was good. Why the poor rating then? Because after 20 hours of flights and standing in line forever at Nairobi airport I needed sleep. After a couple of hours of sleep... More

I have stayed at the Guest House many times over about 12 years. It is simple, it is not elaborate, but the staff are wonderful. Many of them have been there ever since we started going years ago. The food is good, and buffets are plentiful, but you have to realize it is not an American style buffet. The security... More
